the societal changes in a dent in a nation's shameful conference. last fall we did make some progress even at the ballot box which has been very difficult during this generation but prop 36 passed in the deeply embedded 3 strikes law. i also want to point out to this group even though the focus today is on public defenders in the criminal system, in san francisco we try to go even further than that. last year they were making san francisco the rights to civil council city, the city of gideon. there are civil cases, eviction cases, family law cases where the consequences, the results followed in court are almost as severe to what gideon faced and what people face in criminal cases. what we recognize at the outset of the supervisors proclamation is part inspirational, our leaders in the community have rallied around it and the bar association and our firms have taken on more conviction cases. later we'll be holding an event to thank people in these positions and so please stay tuned about that. in the meantime let's focus on gideon and the public defenders role. i would say if there is ever

, washington bureau chief of t"th washington post." we've talked about how attitudes have changed. you look at the polls and the politicians. do you have a sense -- what do you think, ryan? why is this all happening now? >> why did everything move so quickly? >> why the sea change? yeah. >> i think actually, karl rove ironically deserves a lot of the credit for it. in 2004, the republican party put a bunch of anti-gay marriage issues on different state ballots to drive out evangelical voters. what it did is it took an issue that had not necessarily been partisan before and turned it into a deeply part son one. that meant that democrats now had to decide whether they were against gay marriage, for gay marriage, for civil unions, against civil unions. as soon as you make the democratic party decide on a civil rights issue, they will shift eventually -- it's going to take some time, but they will eventually get there. what you saw is rapidly over the next several years, the democratic party moved in favor of gay marriage. once gay marriage then became legalized in different states, people went

of that is going to change when gay couples are allowed to do the same. the fact is that throughout the nation's history, gay couples and gay individuals have been paying their taxes, and by paying our taxes, we help support all the legal benefits and protections of marriage. according to the government accountability office, there are over 01100 legal benefits and protections that are given to married couples. we have been subsidizing those throughout the nation's history. yet we are unable to take advantage of those same incentives to marry. that cannot be constitutional. host: let me ask you this. should the court be jumping in at this point? one of the arguments being made by the lawyers for proposition 8, today's oral argument, is that there is a social movement happening. polls are showing more people in favor. let that take place. let states decide what they want to do. is there a role for the supreme court? caller: of course there is. this cannot be accomplished in a piecemeal, state-by-state basis. most of the legal benefits of marriage come from the federal government. but me give yo
-trial services to change their system. and i think it has allowed san francisco and santa cruz to be ahead of the game. when realignment hits, you are better prepared to manage this increased responsibility. i think there are two case studies that we can look to and look for peer support from our local justice administrators to help other counties implement such services. >> mr. deong, would you address mr. simon's question of the tool that could have a discriminatory component. >> i want to add in there, thank you, matt, to add to what the district attorney is saying. we are currently evaluating our instrument and the half of dozen factors includes a current charge, felony, and the unemployed, drug abuse and having an opinion case. which i think is perhaps much different than say 10 years ago. and we are validating this information now in terms of comparing it to the mounds of data we have, if anything, any volunteer researchers out there. who want -- it really requires a lot of work and scrutiny. but i think it echoes what the district attorney is saying. we are mindful of the jails have
in that area would change drastically. i notice the timeframe for this is 2020, but i question whether or not 2020 we would have enough information to actually start planning what to do with those exit orders. i need more information in terms of whether or not these things are being considered in terms of not having a candlestick there. >> okay. mta staff? >> good morning. deputy for planning and on behalf of the project manager who is ill. let me answer that question. it's listed as a 2020 project and this relates to the bay view water front project which is happening in the 2020 timeframe. our analysis shows to prior to that point it's not absolutely critical to have that change rebuilt. it does take a long time to get those projects under way and an approved and funded and it's work now between now and 2020. >> i guess i was going on the opposite end whether some of the build out would be slower? >> that could well be. we've seen it happen with mission bay and commission cycles. going forward it's hard to say. that would be the earliest in our opinion, although we know that some fol
section 5.6381. >> the budget once again from last year have not changed. all the price points what you are doing is coping last year's budget. because san francisco is in a bit of a budget crunch, staff is recommended that while we reserve our rights to the money according to state code that we return the money back to the general fund of the san francisco city and county and reserve the right to return the money itself. so we have the right to it in the future. if you have any questions, i'm happy to answer? >> that goes back to the clerk of the board is that correct? >> yes. it goes back to where the money comes from okay. comments or questions? >> i know the budget is going to come back for us again, it would be helpful to have more of a detailed break down in terms of where this is going. i know for example you have a proposals sflafco budget explanation and it talks about what these categories are but it doesn't specify the amount per category, so i just wanted a lot more detail around the budget to have a clear understanding of what we are spending for things. >> i will be happy
don't know. i think we need a culture change with the regulators. i talk about this a lot in my book. you've got a lot of good-will intentioned people, but they confuse bank profitability with bank safety and soundness. they're not the same thing. there's the right way and there's a wrong way to make money. they're almost aligning themselves to bank managers and wanting to have the appearance of profitability because they think that makes a sound banking system. it's really upside down. you can't ignore the problems here. some of that is overlooked. >> we thought we were going to get a culture change after the big crash. >> yeah, well, i think it's coming slowly but not fast enough. it's amazing that, you know, so many years after the crisis less than half of the dodd frank rules have been completed. a lot of them are watered down. >> by? >> well, the regulators have come to do this. some of the provisions in dodd frank h too many provisions, but we get more exceptions when these proposals come out such as the volcker rule. we get these rules that are hard to enforce and easy to game

of politics. let's talk in a broad sense about the changing country and the changing political parties. >> one of the major things that we forget, because we're so comfortable with the united states being a two-party system and that being what democracy is or at least is here, we forget that during the early republic, there wasn't a two- party system, that the founding fathers hated parties and thought they would be terrible for democracy. there was this generation, particularly martin van buren who said we need to have an ordered, structured system, of making political things happen and that's the parties. we have to have a philosophy. we have to show up together and vote on the same thing and we have to hang together, or these sections of the country or these differences in the democracy will spin out of control, and actually they did. >> how did washington, d.c. change over these 12 years? >> it grew like crazy. at the beginning, of course, it was basically just kind of a big -- with trees and dirt and then there would be a house and a building there. then it became actually a city and it b
believe. this permit does not change the use, there is a subsequent permit that was issued on march fourth and that is to remodel an existing retail space within the existing mixed used tenant building and for any retail establishment that is on appeal. that is the permit that creates oska. if the concerns over the establishment of oska, then the ax action has no bearing on tha. we found this is not a formula retail use. when the change of use or when the tenant improvement permit was issued by the planning department and issued in march fourth, they the applicant submitted a formula use affidavit which stated that they only have 8 operating. we have also separately requested materials from them, which show that they only have eight operating and tried to clear everything that i can on the internet to try to find if they have more than eleven or more establishments in the u.s. and they did not. and so, for that reason, we found that they are not from retail use and the argument is that they have internet stores, and that does not count towards the eleven establishments. you have to have e
hale has mentioned it's based on a certain renewable rate and customer care participation. if we change some of these choices made in the programs or changed in some of the assumption we can change the cost of the program and apply the cost savings to either lowering the rate or we can apply it to bonding capacity, but if we were to add up all of those cost savings that were summarized by miss hale, that comes you the to $9.4 million annually and that would give us roughly $90 million in bonding capacity. if we chose that otherwise it could go into savings for rate payers. >> yes. or we could reduce the rate the 2 cents for the renewables mix and half cent for the payment. >> and the areas for commission action can you say what that provides in terms of what it means in terms of that $9.4 million. does that go directly toward rate payers or does that lead towards -- >> it leads to the program as it's been designed as with a 10 percent mix with the type 1 renewable, 85 percent for the type 2 renewable. it's been said at the program has been designed. if we make different choices on how

to change that? i really think that -- i sort of now, although i came up with the name the southern public defenders training center. it's not just training we do. when people think of training they think of learning cross-examination skills and of learning the law. what we do is teach lawyers to adopt values that are missing in the system. we give them strategies when they confront challenges in the system to overcome those challenges instilling values in them and we have a membership community that reinforces to try to do that and the goal is when they are raiseing the standard of interpretation. in 10 years one of them will be sitting at that table, one of them will get that question an they will answer it correctly. i don't have enough resources. the movement is about teaching people to be better lawyers today but also building an army of people across the region and ultimately across the country who will work their ways into positions of power where they are leading public defenders offices and hiring people behind them to do what you do all the time, jeff, you are out there telling p

in height is due to a change in grade of portola drive, it does rise in elevation but gradually, the rise from lot to lot is approximately 3 and a half feet. what they are going to do is have a 6 foot jump between one roof to the next. this arupt jump in height appears out of character for our area. all of the neighborhood homes do have an increase in height as they proceed up the drive however this increase in height is gradual and actually flows well with the grade of the street. 1325, will have a abrupt jump conflicting with the look of the neighborhood. this area in question of 1325, as even yet to be built. it currently exists only on paper, this will be an attic area. less than 5 feet tall, inside when finished. the change on proposing will in no way effect the residents living there the attic area could never be considered living space, it would merely be a shorter attic, what i am asking for is a compromise to have this finished roof line be built at a lower height. this could be a far less steep pitch or a flat sloped roof, i was been in touch with the board chair and they will o
this property was not an intrusion, someone needs to step up to the plate and says that this needs to be changed. i think that it is really over doing it to put this size of a building in a neighborhood. i had the privilege of living in twin peaks many years ago and i loved it because of the peace and the quiet and the walking trails and just a lovely area. and i don't know why something of this size needs to be cramed into a neighborhood when everybody around there is explained that they don't want it. of course a building would improve their values if it was conducive to the neighborhood but it is not. and i think that somebody needs to make a decision. >> thank you. >> do you care to state your name for the record? >> cunning ham. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please? >> my name is jake, (inaudible) and i used to be on the board of supervisors, but this is just a copy of a letter and i am not sure that it is in the file. i apologize because i was out of the state and i realize that you like to get them a week in advance, i want to go back over the weekend. >> commissioners, we tried to inser
